Ciaran Clark‘s ninth-minute red card summed up the start to Newcastle’s 2021-22 season, with their hopes of a first victory of the season against Norwich dashed early on after a last-man foul from the 32-year-old.
However, Norwich’s inability to take advantage of their extra man saw Callum Wilson convert from the penalty spot after Billy Gilmour‘s handball, but the 10 men of Newcastle could not hang on as Teemu Pukki rifled in a stellar equaliser.
Not a terrific watch for the neutrals nor those inside St James’ Park, Newcastle’s one-pointer with Norwich sees them remain bottom of the pile with just seven points taken from a possible 42, as Eddie Howe struggles to make an immediate positive impression.
Sixteen goals scored at the correct end of the pitch is nothing to be sniffed at, but with a league-high 30 conceded – 17 of which have come at St James’ Park – defensive deficiencies have plagued this Newcastle team under three different managers.
The Magpies can take solace in the fact that they have scored at least two goals in four of their seven home games this term – despite failing to win any of them – and Burnley are hardly renowned for their attacking capabilities away from home.
Clark will miss out here due to suspension owing to his straight red card in the Norwich draw, but Jamaal Lascelles makes a timely return from a ban of his own to slot back into defence.
Matt Ritchie is also back from suspension but may struggle to displace Jamal Lewis at left-back, and Paul Dummett remains the only injury concern for the home side.
Ryan Fraser should be good to go again after being sacrificed for an extra body in defence against Norwich, with Miguel Almiron struggling to force his way into the XI.
As for Burnley, James Tarkowski and Ashley Westwood both return from bans to take their rightful spots in the XI, with Nathan Collins and Jack Cork likely to make way.
Phil Bardsley is all but ruled out with a niggling injury, while Ashley Barnes and Dale Stephens also take their spots in the treatment room for the visitors.
One of Jay Rodriguez or Matej Vydra could come into contention for a start up top alongside Chris Wood, which could see Maxwel Cornet shifted out wide as Johann Berg Gudmundsson drops out.
